Vine for Our Chain Link Fence


pattidmorin@gmail.com added on September 26, 2016 | Answered

I live near St. Paul, MN (I believe that's Zone 5) and would like to plant some vines to cover our black chain link fence. It is south of our house and is very well shaded by lots of trees. I would be interested in some red or orange, but not total. Do you have any suggestions?

Boston ivy and Trumpet vine are two vines that can grow in shade and provide some red coloring:

Clematis vines are also beautiful and great for fences. They will provide beautuful foliage but probably will not flower in shade:
